Preventing Web Page Browser Cache

If you would like to prevent web browsers from placing a copy of your web page within your visitor's cache file, this web site design tip is for you.

Meta tags are used to give detailed instructions in regard to a web page to the Search Engines and browsers.

When visiting a web site, a browser will cache or make a copy of the web page for faster viewing the next visit. This will prevent your regular visitors from seeing your new content unless they manually reload their browser.

To prevent this problem, add the following code between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags of your HTML.

<META http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">

If you update your web page with important information on a regular basis, consider using the no cache meta tag to ensure your regular visitors will view your updated web page and not one within their cache file.
